You can pick from a wide range of shapes like square, bell, and round, oval, rectangular or hexagonal. Among the modern looks that are surging in popularity, is the rectangular shape.
Another good thing to consider is the amount of energy your lamp will use. Electricity costs are higher than ever and every thing you can do to lower your energy bill will be very beneficial. If your lamp is just for decoration and not required to light large areas than you should consider buying a lower watt light bulb to put in this lamp. The latest trend in modern floor lamps has been to have softer light bulbs that just emit a faint glow. If your are using this lamp for reading or for lighting an area than you will want to consider buying a high watt light bulb that has the power to light a large area. Usually a reading floor lamp will require a light bulb of at least 120 watts but other lamps can have bulbs well below 120. Also I recommend that your go with a compact fluorescent light bulb as these are much more energy efficient and will last much loner than a normal light bulb.
Touch lamps are an option too, operating without the clunky switches and providing a modern "touch" to a room. Simply switch them on and off with a touch. Many have various light emitting settings which can be cycled through in 3 or 4 touches, to help you get the degree of brightness that suits best.
Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy, which wasn't so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically, although it doesn't look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking, even though it has it's roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won't refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
